Bandcamp’s second day of waived revenue sharing resulted in fans spending millions of dollars on its website. The company announced it racked up $7.1 million in sales on Friday (May 1), all of which went directly to the artists selling their music and merch on the streaming platform.

“Update on last Friday’s campaign: Fans paid artists $7.1 million in just 24 hours ($2.8m more than March 20th),” Bandcamp revealed Twitter. “Thank you for supporting artists impacted by Covid-19, and mark your calendars for the next.”

Bandcamp has waived its fees twice since the COVID-19 pandemic led to shutdowns around the world, allowing artists to take home 100 percent of profits from sales on the streaming service’s site and app.

The company plans to drop its revenue sharing on two more occasions in the coming months.
